Ted Nugent: Christmastime Deer Hunts Are Special

I often state how opening day is more exciting and intense than Christmas morning. In fact I hear that all the time from hunters all across America, and be it known that nobody means it is more important than the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birthday, just a figure of speech that such a momentous...

Ted Nugent: My Hunting Gear Checklist

I am bombarded with questions all the time about how I hunt, what gear I use and other fun classic deerhunting campfire chatter. You have to admit, us deerhunters are borderline psycho gearnuts, and I for one am damn proud of it! This beyond the choir fascination with my hunting lifestyle erupted way back...

Ted Nugent: Deer Hunting Good Old Days Forever

It could have been the bone-chilling predawn of November 15, 1958, or maybe it was on the indistinguishably and equally thrilling November 15, 2013. Due to overwhelming inner excitement and anticipation, I couldn’t sleep a wink the night before. I had dedicated as much time as I could possibly muster to sight in my...

Ted Nugent: DoubleStraps Bowhunting Morning Glory

I don’t care what Ma Nature has up her sleeve for me on any given huntday, I’m hittin’ the woods no matter what! Even though the season has been very strange and more frustrating than usual, I learned long ago that backstraps don’t come from the cabin. So I get out there relentlessly. My...

Ted Nugent: Never Give Up When the Hunting Gets Tough

I think I was 8, maybe 9 years old. That would have been way back in the year of our Lord 1956. (YIKES! I’m OLD!!) Young Ted snuggled on the leafy ground in a roughshod makeshift groundblind, barely thrown together with rotted old barn shards and limbs of various coniferous and deciduous origin strewn...

Ted Nugent: Safe Deer Hunting is the Responsible Choice

I hope your hunting season is going as wonderfully as mine is. Not exactly overloaded with harvested strappers, but stunning for all the right reasons for sure. The only thing more important than every morning’s hunt and every evening’s hunt for me is getting home safe and sound so I can do it all...

Ted Nugent: School is in Session – Hunting Education 101

The kids’ eyes looked like they would bug out of their happy faces. Oohs and ahhhs permeated the 4th grade classroom and the boys and girls were clearly gaga with fascinated excitement. I hauled the giant buffalo head around the room as I told thrilling stories of wild Indians on horseback with their bows...

Ted Nugent: Sacred Venison Flesh Demands Serious Care

For more than 50 years I have been doing everything in my power to turn people on to the ultimate quality protein and sustenance known to man – VENISON! In each and every case, I have succeeded in educating non-hunters and even anti-hunters, and even animal rights freaks to this inescapable reality. In many instances...

Celebrate hunting!

Ted Nugent: Lethal Deer Hunters Must Improvise, Adapt and Overcome

Ok, I admit it. I’m drunk. Stoned. Wasted. Tipsy. Inebriated. Schnookered. Zombied. Ozzylike. Hopelessly out of control and staggering aimlessly like a lost soul with no direction known. I am well into October and my ponytail has been erect since the early 60s. That’s the 1960s, not my 60s! (It’s all perfectly legal so...
